Islam, from its beginning, has been a religion of the sword (al-Harb). The concept of Holy War (Jihad), mandated by Allah, requires Islam to completely subdue the earth through military conquest. The world is thus divided between Dar al-Islam ("House of Islam") and all areas yet unsubdued by Islam, Dar alHarb ("House of War".) All other religions and all other prophets after Mohammed are false, and all non-Muslims are infidels or “dhimmi”(tolerated minorities under Islamic rule-such as Jews and Christians) until the establishment of the global Caliphate.

The expressed goal of Islam is to create a global Caliphate at which time the Al-Mahdi aka 12th Imam, will return and rule in peace a justice. That is if you are a Muslim, infidels will be slaughtered. I find the proliferation of mosques in the "Bible Belt" of this country quite strategic yet proselytizing in its scope and intent. The one belief that offends Muslims the most is the triune nature of God. That is there is God the Father, Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit. If you’re really interested see the inscriptions on the walls inside the Dome of the Rock which was formally the Jewish Hebrew Temple. When it was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD, the Muslims built The Dome of the Rock. This sounds kind of familiar when you think of a mosque at “ground zero.”These inscriptions I mention are warnings to Christians to deny Christ and his Spirit all of which are fundamental to Christians.

When John Dean joked before the election that Barack Obama was the "John the Baptist" of the Antichrist, he may have "let the cat out of the bag" as everything Barack Obama does would point to this being the case. Barack Obama betrayed his “oath of office” and is disgracing the 5,000 U.S. citizens who lost their lives on 9-11 to the “peaceful ways” of Islam.

Apparently this is what the "good Christians" of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainsville, Florida are up to now.

The parallels to the Spring of 1933 in Germany are a bit disturbing.

That church might as well burn the US Constitution while they are at it. While the church has a right to free speech and peacful assembly, the message that the church is saying is that the US Constitution is only for whites in general and non-whites who can prove citizenship and their belief in christianity.

I saw a new report yesterday that , I believe it was in Utah, that crosses have been put up at the site were st. trooper were killed in the line of duty. Their name, date of death and some kind of deco of the st. trooper sign are on the cross. Now they are being taken to court because it is suppost to be a sign for Christians.

The guy for the cross stated that this was mainly a morman country and when anyone with common sense see a cross that most people will think someone died there not what church is around that the cross stands for.

The guy who was against the crosses being up didn't believe in God and he said he has the right NOT to have to look at the "religious" crosses. Spending $T's to get them taken down.

I believe they should stay. I'm with the guy that when I see crosses up along the roads I ALWAYS wonder who dies. I DO NOT think they are a welcome sign out for inviting you to church.

And you've posted it a few times already on other forums in Topix. You seem to like this line about Muslims. So unless you are actually Lambert Dolphin, I gotta ask, is he plagiarizing you or are you plagiarizing him? Because I seem to recall you swearing up and down on several occasions that you aren't a copyer/paster and that any time you do you attribute the work to the original author. So are you Mitch or are you Lambert? What do I call you now, bro? Please clear up for us which thoughts were originally yours and which were someone else's that you just liked a whole lot. It's OK to agree with someone else, Mitch. It's just not cool to rip off their words and pretend they're your own.

I read that people in Spain did not want a mosque
built in their town. They buried pigs on the site
to contaminate it.No one wants them!

Spain doesn't fall under the auspices of the U.S. Constitution. In fact, if you like Spaniards so much, you're going to love your new neighbors from Mexico.

The Spaniards also slaughtered half of Central America at one time because they liked the shiny metal that the natives decorated with. What's your point? Oh, I know, you're advocating that we become a parliamentary monarchy, like Spain, right? No? Oh, then maybe you'd like for the Catholic Church to become one of our primary lobbying groups? Oh wait, they do kinda do that right now. They just have a few legislative roadblocks in the way of them actually doing business the way they'd like to here. From what some of you have been saying, you'd be perfectly happy removing those roadblocks to allowing government and church interaction. So long as it's the church you like using the government to get rid of the church you don't like. Careful what you ask for.

Sorry, bud, but it sounds to me like you were the one who was trolling with your stupid "buried pigs" comment. If you don't like the discussion, don't participate. But don't bring some ignorant right-wing blog point that has been regurgitated to death and expect to be taken any more seriously than we would take someone who advocates pissing in the Holy Water of a Catholic Church or defecating on a statue of the Buddha.

If muslims smell badly, then they won't detect the fact that you give off a fairly foul and flagrant odor.

There's only one way that you'd know what a little catholic lads "sounds like" and I think this news article by the Christian Science Monitor tells your story:

http://www.csmonitor.com/2002/0405/p01s01-uss...

By Mark Clayton, Staff writer of The Christian Science Monitor / April 5, 2002

Despite headlines focusing on the priest pedophile problem in the Roman Catholic Church, most American churches being hit with child sexual-abuse allegations are Protestant, and most of the alleged abusers are not clergy or staff, but church volunteers.

These are findings from national surveys by Christian Ministry Resources (CMR), a tax and legal-advice publisher serving more than 75,000 congregations and 1,000 denominational agencies nationwide.

CMR's annual surveys of about 1,000 churches nationwide have asked about sexual abuse since 1993. They're a remarkable window on a problem that lurked largely in the shadows of public awareness until the Catholic scandals arose.

The surveys suggest that over the past decade, the pace of child-abuse allegations against American churches has averaged 70 a week. The surveys registered a slight downward trend in reported abuse starting in 1997, possibly a result of the introduction of preventive measures by churches.

"I think the CMR numbers are striking, yet quite reasonable," says Anson Shupe, anIndiana University professor who's written books about church abuse. "To me it says Protestants are less reluctant to come forward because they don't put their clergy on as high a pedestal as Catholics do with their priests."

At least 70 incidents a week

Dr. Shupe suggests the 70 allegations-per-week figure actually could be higher, because underreporting is common. He discovered this in 1998 while going door to door in Dallas-Ft. Worth communities where he asked 1,607 families if they'd experienced abuse from those within their church. Nearly 4 percent said they had been victims of sexual abuse by clergy. Child sexual abuse was part of that, but not broken out, he says.

James Cobble, executive director of CMR, who oversees the survey, says the data show that child sex-abuse happens broadly across all denominations&#150; and that clergy aren't the major offenders.

"The Catholics have gotten all the attention from the media, but this problem is even greater with the Protestant churches simply because of their far larger numbers," he says.

Of the 350,000 churches in the US, 19,500 &#150; 5 percent &#150; are Roman Catholic. Catholic churches represent a slightly smaller minority of churches in the CMR surveys which aren't scientifically random, but "representative" demographic samples of churches, Dr. Cobble explains.

Since 1993, on average about 1 percent of the surveyed churches reported abuse allegations annually. That means on average, about 3,500 allegations annually, or nearly 70 per among the predominantly Protestant group, Cobble says.

The CMR findings also reveal:

&#149; Most church child-sexual-abuse cases involve a single victim.

&#149; Law suits or out-of-court settlements were a result in 21 percent of the allegations reported in the 2000 survey.

Volunteers are more likely than clergy or paid staff to be abusers.

Perhaps more startling, children at churches are accused of sexual abuse as often as are clergy and staff. In 1999, for example, 42 percent of alleged child abusers were volunteers &#150; about 25 percent were paid staff members (including clergy) and 25 percent were other children.

I cannot believe people cannot understand why there are so many negative comments against Muslims! How about these?

9/11 attacks - that's obvious.
Everyday day we see in the news how innocent people-Muslims and non-Muslims are gunned down or bombed in marketplaces and mosques.
We're always hearing about "jihad." Why don't they declare jihad against diseases that cause misery against people and animals?

Look at all democracy has created, whether in America, Europe, or Asia. Automobiles, cell phones, computers, medical vaccines and techniques, etc. In recent memory what have the Muslims created to help mankind? You can thank them for planned attacks or attacks that have happened, long lines in airports due to security measures that have been adopted because of Muslim terrorists.

Just as Muslim customs should be respected in the Middle East, why don't they respect the customs and traditions of lands they live in? Instead they want to use sharia law and not assimilate with the host nation's people. Yes, there are Muslims that do, but many do not. Those that don't want the host country to change to the Muslim way. That's not right.

Muslims tend to destroy instead of create. Look at the daily headlines of hate and violence. Are Christians and Jews perfect? Nobody is. But Christians and Jews have created products and methods to help mankind and animals. Christians and Jews have made life easier and more productive through inventions.

Yes, Christian and Jewish theology have their roots in Biblical days. And the Muslims in the 6th century or so. The Christians and Jews have respected their religions and bettered themselves and mankind in a positive way at the same time. The Muslims have not bettered mankind with inventions in recent memory, yet they use technology and medicines, etc. created by others. Yet the Muslims still want jihad.

By the way - I will always love and respect Anwar Sadat. He's one of my heroes because he wanted peace with Israel. Any person that wants peace with their enemy - no matter what their race, religion, or nationality, should be loved and respected by all. And the Muslims killed him for it.

The Muslims have lost trust and respect around the world thanks to their violence and hatred that we see on a daily basis in the news. Yes there are good Muslims who want peace. Sadly they are lumped together with the radicals. How many Muslims have denounced worldwide attacks? How many have danced in the streets?

Don’t give us this crap about being a racist or bigot? The racists and bigots are the Muslims. I understand Muslims in Saudi Arabia, for example, will not allow churches to be built? Who is intolerant? Democracy and religious freedom dies when Islam rules. Those are perhaps the biggest reasons we are against Islam. We want religious and other freedoms in America. Look at history. Look at what’s happened in Europe. For example go on the web to “Topix Denmark,”“Topix New York,” "Topix Islam," or “Topix Australia.” These sites will open your eyes, as they have mine. Get educated.We’re only responding to their many negative actions. Why the negativity towards Muslims? DUH! Respect is a two-way street.
